Density functional studies of the edges of single-layer 1H-MoS2 are presented. This phase presents a rich variability of edges that can influence the morphology and properties of MoS2 nano-objects, play an important role in industrial chemical processes, and find future applications in energy storage, electronics and spintronics. The so-called Mo-100?%S edges vertical S-dimers were confirmed to be stable, however the authors also identified a family of metastable edges combining Mo atoms linked by two-electron donor symmetrical disulfide ligands and four-electron donor unsymmetrical disulfide ligands. These may be entropically favored, potentially stabilizing them at high temperatures as a ?liquid edge? phase. For Mo-50?%S edges, S-bridge structures with 3? periodicity along the edge are the most stable, compatible with a Peierls? distortion arising from the d-bands of the edge Mo atoms. An additional explanation for this periodicity is proposed through the formation of 3-center bonds.
